Shabby shower and toilet. Unreasonable check in and off time.

Overall a nice place to stay. Helpful staff and a great location for touristy things. Less of a good location for clubbing or finding cool hangouts. Due to the huge size of this hostel, the atmosphere is more like a hotel meaning it is difficult to meet people. There are no locks or individual cubicles for showers, which means privacy is limited. Toilets could be cleaner.

Common bathrooms and showers where terribly dirty in the morning. I woke up around 9.pm to take the shower and it was impossible to find a clean shower.

There were always staff at reception, which was extremely helpful, especially when checking out in the middle of the night. It was fairly clean and as a typical hostel which does tailor towards youths, noise was an issue on a couple of nights, but most of the time it was ok. A brilliant international atmosphere also existed.

Staff were not friendly in the least and seemed bothered by even the simplest request for directions or advice. Would have appreciated a friendly face when visiting a city like Berlin for the first time. The connect to wi-fi was silly, a new code and password every 12 hours was a big ol pain. But I suppose we weren't there to sit on our wi-fi.

Excellent hostel, very central and easy to get to. Friendly staff and nice bar/restaurant in the first floor. My sole qualm would be that the showers are a bit too open for my taste, but that's it.

Hostel well located for main tourist attractions but not very well located for nightlife. Rooms spacious but slight issue with lockers as only one persons padlock in our group could keep the locker closed. Helpful staff and nice to get free towels.

I had a pretty good experience in Cityhostel Berlin. The location of the hostel is amazing, the room is well equiped and very clean, so I enjoyed my stay very much. Also, the breakfast was quite nice, even though it is not included. The one thing I think could be improved is the quality of the attention of the staff, they were helpful in general, but they could be nicer.

Could hardly find sleep at night, because people were talking until 5 a.m. in the backyard.

Great facilities and cheap for the very centre of Berlin. The size of the hostel means it can feel a little soulless, but I would definitely return.

Excellent stay at this hostel. Wash room facilities could do with being upgraded but still in usable condition. Great location, quiet yet still close to everything. Very friendly staff and cheap drinks in the bar!

The hostel is well located, the staff is friendly yet a bit untrained and the reception is open 24/7. Unfortunately we couldn't find much sleep during our stay bc the people in the backyard were very loud until 2 - 3 a.m. After we complained about the issue it got better for one night - after that the noise was back again. Unfortunately the rooms are not air-conditioned so the rooms got pretty hot and when we opened the windows, the noise got much worse. It's also very loud in the hostel itself.

My stay in this Hostel was interesting, to say the least. My roommates arrived quite late, at about 2-3 AM, and the Hostel stayed quite noisy quite late. Additionally, the atmosphere was similar to a club, and while not bad in a club, was not wholly expected from a hostel. While in a great location near downtown Berlin, I would most likely not stay here again due to the poor conditions of the toilet facilities and the overall atmosphere of the hostel.

Overall pretty good hostel, but as everyone says, it feels more like a hotel! Prob not the best place for solo travellers to meet new people, but great for groups! The rooms were good, clean, quiet, and had lockers. Location is amazing, and is deft worth it! (Walking distance chekpoint Charlie!) But something should deft be done about the showers, too few of them and the ones that are there don't have a curtain or have glass walls between them - a bit too intimate for my taste!

This hostel was very centrally located, and the area around it was very nice. The 6 person dorm was nice, and the beds were fine. This hostel was good overall. There was nothing really bad about it, or anything outstanding about it either. It was a great value for the money. I would stay here again.

Asked for some soap in the dispenser but didn't get any. Staff could be a bit more organised.
